Good to know

Even though English is widely understood in Finland, most of the Finnish employers require at least basic Finnish skills. Also in companies where English is the working language, Finnish tends to be the language of the unofficial communication. Therefore, it is highly recommended to start studying Finnish as soon as possible after arriving into the country!

It is good to focus on companies where the knowledge of a certain language or market area would be an asset, e.g. export companies.
